Reducing our footprint

We’ve only got one planet.

So, we’re committed to monitoring and reducing our impact on the environment. We’ve already met the highest international standards of environmental management (ISO 14001) and our goal by 2020 is to have reduced our CO2 emissions by 20% and water consumption by 15%.

Here’s what we’re working on: 

We’re consolidating our distribution centres and estimate an annual saving of 1.09 million transportation miles a year and 1.56m KG of CO2.

We’ve installed two boreholes at the Coleford site that’s reduced the water taken from the town’s supply by 25%. Our water efficiency programme is all about reducing water wastage and minimising our impact on local resources.

Waste heat from our Combined Heat and Power Plant is captured and re-used to create steam for our production process. This provides 76%* of our power on-site.

We’ve reduced the plastic used in our supply chain by 2,606 tonnes in the last 12 months and we’re still reducing.

We’ve been 'zero waste to landfill' since 2008. We’re committed to the Three Rs: Reduce, Re-use Recycle.
